A Thank You From Pollen

Building narrative power cannot be done successfully by a single organization or even one sector — it requires multiple spheres of influence to create impact. Beyond the storytellers, artists, organizers, funders, and policy makers, it starts with people who believe that a more just, free, and loving future is possible.

We’re at a pivotal moment in Pollen’s growth and change—welcoming Ruby Oluoch as our new executive director, and sharpening our focus on narrative work as our contribution to a growing ecosystem of community builders.

We set a goal to raise $55,000 by the end of 2022 to help us navigate this change and continue growing. Thanks to these Pollenites, we made our goal!flower and leaf illustrations
